Cowley picked up where his team left off last season, allying fitness to an unquenchable team spirit that brought his side 13 points from five unbeaten games.
Even more impressive was that four of them came from losing positions and helped secure leadership of Sky Bet League Two going into September.
Cowley said: “It is a new group and we are learning about each other every day, so we are certainly a work in progress. But we have been pleased to accumulate the points that we have done in what was a really, really tough start to the season in terms of the fixtures.
“It has been a good start, but it is only a start. It certainly gives us a platform to push on from, but the Manager of the Month award is firstly a team effort, but also a club effort, and I just want to congratulate everybody behind the scenes for all of their selfless hard work.
“We are pleased to get the Manager of the Month award, but we will be even happier if we can get the April Manager of the Month award, because that will mean that we are performing at our best in the business end of the season.”
George Burley chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel.
He said: “As last season, Danny has his team playing with great spirit, energy and motivation.
“This has resulted in an unbeaten month with four wins taking Lincoln to the top of Sky Bet League Two. This team continues to improve and impress in the process.”
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “After consolidating their place in League Two last season, there is a feeling around Lincoln that they should be making a shot at promotion this term.
“The season couldn’t really have started any better for Danny Cowley’s men, with four convincing wins and a draw.”
